The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo has announced that an update to Pokémon HOME version 2.0.0 will be available in the coming weeks. This update will allow recently released Pokémon titles, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, Pokémon Shining Pearl, and Pokémon Legends: Arceus, to be mutually compatible to past games Pokémon Sword, Pokémon Shield, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, and Pokémon GO.

Pokémon HOME is a cloud service app that enables Trainers to transfer Pokémon easily between different save files, they can also import Pokémon from Nintendo DS titles.

The Pokémon that players can take to each game are limited to the Pokémon that appear in those games. For example, Hisuian Growlithe cannot be transferred to Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, Pokémon Shining Pearl, Pokémon Sword, or Pokémon Shield, but Pikachu caught in Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield can be transferred to Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, or Pokémon Shining Pearl. Players can view the details on which Pokémon can be taken to which games from the Help menu of the mobile device version of Pokémon HOME.
